NAILS | Neon Watermelons #CBBxManiMonday

It only seems fitting that my first post back after a 2 week hiatus be a #CBBxManiMonday. In truth, I actually had these nails done and ready to post at the very beginning of the month as a I did them over the BC Day long weekend, but then Hugo got sick a few days later and the rest is history. While I am not a superstitious person, the last time I painted watermelon nails and posted them was the week Hemingway was diagnosed with liver cancer so I haven't done them since. This year, I decided to it was time to redo them and I even told my husband my thoughts on watermelon nails the night I did them and he said it was silly to think that anything would happen to Hugo should I do watermelon nails. Again, not to say that I believe my watermelon nails caused Hugo's death, but it's strange to think that less than a week after painting them, he was gone. Suffice it to say, I am never going to do watermelon nails again just to avoid tempting fate.

We shall see how I do with the blogging this week and whether it feels more natural. I definitely don't feel the like crying all the time anymore which is good, but Harper does seem more lonely without Hugo. the number of sad mews she has given us in the wee hours of the morning indicates to me that there was probably some form of play in those hours when we weren't awake. I will do my best to finish off the month with one more summer-themed manicure next week, but for now enjoy this beautiful week!

Happy Monday everyone and be sure to check out Renee and Trysh's blogs for their summer manicures this week!
